This month’s gorilla generated an imaginative array of artwork. Ten-year-old Ruby’s ape was
X-rayed in the doctor’s office, revealing a whale in the beast’s belly. Darien, 4, made a vibrant masterpiece with oil pastels, coloring her monkey in bright yellow, crimson and navy blue. Sophia, 7, fashioned a forest around her mighty mammal, with tall trees and blue mountains, and decorated her creature’s pelt with stripes and curly-cues. Savor your summer break, young artists, but don’t forget to send us your coloring-contest entries by mid-month.
